This article will teach you 3 little tricks to get you a jump start to making some money fast in "Hay Day"!

1. Use Tom to Run Your Errands

Tom is a little like an errand boy. You get Tom when you reach level 14. At that point, you get to use him free for the day. Take advantage of that! Then you can pay 15 diamonds to get him for one day.

Tom is a great way to make money fast in Hay Day. The game does award diamonds frequently, so hoard those diamonds and get Tom working for you on occasion.

Make Sure You're Free All Day

First, when you buy Tom, make sure you're free for the day. You can send Tom to find goods and crops for you every 2 hours, and you want to take advantage of that. You can then get goods cheap from him, and sell those for the highest price at your roadside shop. Go for the most expensive goods you can for your level.

What Tom Should Buy

You can do well sending Tom after berries, cherries, and apples. These crops sell high and sell quickly because they take so long to grow. Check your roadside shop to see what goods are the highest priced. Send Tom after those as well, then sell them off in your roadside shop. Don't sell to visitors to your farm, they don't pay full price. Utilize the roadside shop instead.

2. Get Rare Items by Planting Wheat

Rare items are items used to expand or clear your land, upgrade buildings, and work in the mine. Here's a little known trick to getting rare items fast in Hay Day. You can plant wheat and harvest it every two minutes. So begin planting lots of wheat. For about every 70 fields you grow, you get a rare item.

If you sell off everything but wheat in your inventory, then visitors will only request wheat. The more you have stockpiled, the more they ask for. Just keep selling it to them!

Put your wheat on sale in your roadside shop for a penny, or more if that's what you want. It will usually sell pretty fast if you put it up there cheap. This allows you to make room in your silo and keep growing that wheat for more rare items!

Once you're done with this, go back to making goods, completing missions, and selling a variety in your shop. Just remember the trick if you need to upgrade your buildings, expand your land, or just make money fast! Hay Day's newspaper is a great place to replenish your stock of seeds too, don't spend diamonds on them!

3. Take Advantage of Newspaper Ads

Hay Day's newspaper is full of tons of goods for sale and many at cheap prices. Spend some time scouring the newspaper for cheap goods. Buy those and resell them for higher prices.

The newspaper will practically never run out of fresh ads. If you're not finding what you're looking for, change the language in the settings. This will bring up a new newspaper with fresh ads! A great little trick to use if you're on a mission to find something, or just searching for some cheap goods.

Well, that's it, three ways to make money fast in Hay Day! Just a few of many strategies out there and these won't be the only ones you find. These tricks have worked very well for me though.

Key Things to Remember

  • Use Tom only when you aren't busy for the day.
  • Don't spend diamonds buying crops.
  • Plant lots of wheat for rare items.
  • Update your newspaper by changing the language setting.

Most importantly, good luck, and have fun!
